Cobb Salad

I hate eggs.  So, unless it is cooked invisible e.g., mixed in cake, keep it away from me! Pad Thai, Cobb Salad egg-less or else I may puke.  Presented and enjoyed, egg-less Brown Derby Cobb Salad.

The recipe calls are iceberg lettuce, watercress, Romaine and curly endive; however, my lettuce overflows in my garden, pictured above.  I used butter lettuce, red leaf and curly something that reseeded from last year.

mmmmm fancy radishes not an usual Cobb Salad item but I like to throw my garden booty any chance I get.  My tomatoes are not producing yet, although I saw the first flower today...soon.  I have about 15 plants growing and my everlasting yellow tomato plant I purchased 3 years ago from Walmart.  It has survived blazing hot days as well as freezing nights.  
The recipe calls for peeling and seeding the tomatoes.  Lazy me says not way!  Plus I like small sweet tomatoes and could not imaging the endless peeling.

Faken bacon yummy but am bothered by the GMO soy so everything in moderation and it is virtually grease free.
